THE D. E. SHAW GROUP is a global investment and technology development firm with more than 1,000 employees, approximately $32 billion in investment capital as of January 1, 2014, and offices in North America, Europe, and Asia. Since our founding in 1988, our firm has earned an international reputation for successful investing based on innovation, careful risk management, and the quality and depth of our staff. We have a significant presence in the world's capital markets, investing in a wide range of companies and financial instruments in both developed and developing economies.
Our culture demands and rewards analytical rigor and adherence to the highest possible ethical and legal standards, and we've cultivated a collegial work environment that promotes collaboration across disciplines, geographies, and investment strategies. Our firm has been built in part by attempting to do what other companies might consider impossible, or never imagine at all. A single transformative idea that ultimately works—for a new business, a new trading model, or an improved back office process—is worth a dozen ideas that lead nowhere. We've learned that when an extraordinary team sets extraordinarily ambitious goals, astonishing breakthroughs can be expected.

Counsyl is a medical genomics startup in South San Francisco, California. Our goal is to make the human genome practically useful for life-altering decisions.
The vast majority of our operations are powered by our own custom-built infrastructure on a Python/Django/Postgres stack, from ordering to lab processing to billing. We’re building new tools, new workflows, and new infrastructure to solve the challenging problems of a technology startup involved with not just bits, but also interconnected physical components like lab robotics and patient samples.
Don’t be intimidated if you don’t have a genomics background; solving these problems fundamentally requires software solutions. We’re looking for the best and brightest software engineers — strong generalists with solid CS fundamentals and practical software engineering intuition — to help us scale up genomics to billions of users.
